Nuance K609A-K1A-13.0 overview

  • 1Description

Control your computer using only your voice with Dragon NaturallySpeaking 13 Premium from Nuance. This voice recognition software program can open or close programs and transcribe what you say, allowing you to work up to three times faster than if you were typing. This version of NaturallySpeaking works with either a user-supplied headset or internal microphone to function. Using just your voice, it can be used to compose and edit emails and documents in Microsoft Office, Word Perfect X7, and Open Office Writer 4.1, as well as surf the web, launch applications, select menu items, execute key functions, and more.

Several new features are built into NaturallySpeaking 13 Premium. They include increased transcription accuracy, broader compatibility with web email tools, increased processing performance, simplified installation and audio setup, redesigned user interface, and updated application support.

Aside from real-time dictation using a mic, its transcription features allow you to use a separately-sold digital recorder to record your voice, save it as an audio file, and have the recording transcribed into text. The Premium edition is also compatible with Bluetooth microphones and headsets and allows users to customize predefined commands to suit their specific needs.

Dragon NaturallySpeaking 13 Premium learns and adapts from working with you. The software learns the words and phrases you use the most and is able to spell difficult words and proper names correctly. By using the included Vocabulary Editor, single words or phrases can be added for a more accurate dictation.

This product is packaged in a simple white box and includes Password Genie software which helps you store and manage your online login and password information.

Features New to this Edition

Increased Accuracy
  • 15% more out-of-the-box accuracy than Dragon 12
  • Learn from Sent Email tool now works with Web-based email such as Gmail and Yahoo! Mail - you have more potential sources to let Dragon familiarize itself with the words and phrases you might write
  • The Vocabulary Editor interface makes it easy to search Dragon's vocabulary, add new words and customize each word's unique properties
  • The Vocabulary Editor lets you search on not only the written forms but also the spoken forms
  • Smart Format Rules enhancements offer hints for alternative word written forms - now Dragon 13 better adapts upon detecting your format corrections - abbreviations, numbers, and more - so your dictated text looks the way you want it every time
  • Increased Processing
    Faster processors yield faster performance: Dragon NaturallySpeaking 13 Premium continues to enhance its ability to choose models and parameters depending on your computer's resources to deliver the fastest performance
    Simpler Setup
    Dragon NaturallySpeaking 13 Premium features a shorter setup time as compared to version 12:
  • For the first profile, it assigns the profile name rather than asking you to enter a name. You can always rename the profile later
  • Reading four minutes of text is no longer necessary. Dragon NaturallySpeaking 13 Premium is already accurate right out of the box. You can also go back later to read text to further train Dragon if necessary
  • Dragon NaturallySpeaking 13 Premium no longer asks you to adapt its vocabulary based on documents and emails during profile creation. If you wish to launch the analysis later, you have that option
  • Simplified Audio Setup
    Dragon NaturallySpeaking 13 Premium automatically detects the best audio devices available. You simply select one of the recommended devices that you wish to use and the microphone check takes a few seconds with just one screen of easy-to-read text
    Redesigned and Enhanced User Interface
  • DragonBar: The DragonBar provides clearly indicated controls and automatically collapses when you're not using it. You can use the DragonBar menu to customize its behavior. If you're an existing Dragon user and you're more comfortable using the classic DragonBar, you can easily switch back to it
  • Learning Center: Formerly called the Dragon Sidebar, the Learning Center has been redesigned and enhanced. The top panel, open by default, contains essential commands and advice which automatically change as you switch context to different applications
  • Interactive Tutorial Enhancements: The Interactive Tutorial has been redesigned and augmented. Its short, progressive simulations now also introduce the DragonBar, the Learning Center, the Vocabulary Editor, and important options, as well as basic Web navigation and use of Web-based email. It is automatically presented at the end of the profile creation process
  • Use the Internal Mic
    Dragon NaturallySpeaking 13 Premium now supports microphones built into many laptops for flexibility and convenience. You're now free to dictate documents and speak commands directly into your laptop without using a headset. For the most accurate results, we recommend keeping a consistent distance from the computer's mic and minimizing ambient noise so it does not pick up stray sounds
    Web Compatibility
    Dragon NaturallySpeaking 13 Premium supports dictation with Full Text Control, as well as enhanced Command and Control with Internet Explorer, Chrome, and Firefox. In order to use Dragon in these supported browsers, you must enable the Dragon 13 browser add-on. Full Text Control provides an enhanced experience when dictating, editing, and formatting. Command Control works with standard website controls, links, and buttons, including Gmail, Yahoo! Mail, iCloud, and more.
    Updated Application Support
    Dragon NaturallySpeaking 13 Premium now supports the following application versions with Full Text Control:

    WordPerfect X7
    Open Office Writer 4.1

    Standard Features

    Using text-to-speech, your dictations will be proofread for errors
    Free Dragon Remote Mic App
    Using Dragon's Free Remote Mic App, turn your iOS or Android device into a wireless mic that is fully compatible with NaturallySpeaking 13 Premium
    Free Tutorials
    If you're not familiar with NaturallySpeaking 13 Premium, Dragon makes it easy to learn and master with a simplified setup and helpful tutorials
    Password Genie
    The included Free Password Genie software helps users store and manage their online login and password information

    Nuance K609A-K1A-13.0 reviews

    Dragon NaturallySpeaking 13 Premium is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Useless for transcribing video interviews One star, because it doesn't do what I had hoped, and I think the advertising was misleading. I bought this because it advertises the ability to work from recorded audio files. I thought this would be a great way to create transcripts of video interviews. I quickly learned that Dragon would have to learn each new voice, through a recording of a script. I can't ask my interviewees to read a script. So, it's pretty much useless for me unless I go back to the old procedure of reading in my own voice each line of the interview.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was hoping for. I purchased this version of Dragon Naturally Speaking hoping that it would be an improvement from the previous versions which I have on several. In fact it is quite accurate and works very well. I've been having some arthritic pain in my hands and hoped it would work in being able to navigate email and other applications. This also is proven to be true, not all commands are available that I would like but many are and it does mean I have to use my hands to navigate with the mouse far less than previously. Overall I think this is an excellent release and it is made using my computer easier and faster, in fact I'm dictating this review and have had practically zero errors. And the errors that I have experience could because I do not have the best mike, I will be purchasing a new one just waiting for the Black Friday deals.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Limited Usefulness This software really has very limited utility, which I did not realize until I opened the box and became aware of its limitations. The more useful versions are much more expensive. Could not return because of opened box. Check it out online before buying -- or not buying.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from The Technology Still Isn't Where I Need It to Be Dragon still seems to be the only game in town for somewhat accurate voice transcription. As a tech writer, I'd love to have a magic wand that would transcribe my recorded meetings. However, nothing out there has yet been able to transcribe multiple voices (meaning my voice, plus one or more interviewees). This means I have to listen to my meeting with headphones, and speak into a mic a quickly as possible to repeat everything everyone says so that Dragon will recognize everything said (but in just 1 voice--mine). This is the second version of Dragon I've tried, and while the accuracy has improved, I still find the interface kludgy and many times wonder whether it's worth my time and effort to perform the transcription this versus old-fashioned typing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very compatible with Windows 10 I have used DNS for at least 15 years. No other voice recognition program has worked as well. This version seems very compatible with Windows 10 with is why I upgraded from the previous version.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dragon Naturally Speaking Finally Gets it Right! I have tried using Naturally Speaking with at least five different versions and always gave up because it made to many errors. This one, though, is a keeper. I can finally give up my keyboard for most activities. It works very well with Microsoft office products and chrome.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice update to a really good program I use this product to write short novels. Excellent voice recognition and easy editing. This version allows for previously recorded audio to be used as input. That was the thing I was missing, so great product.
